Day 1: Growing in Unity Week!

Hello! I'm thrilled this week to be Unity's Growing in Unity girl! I've been a big fan of Unity Stamp Co. (& it's super sweet owners) since the very beginning. They are a great team, great products & they're local to me which even makes them more awesome! :)
For day one today, I decided to break out a new Valentine set Candy Hearts. I just got this set in my last order so I knew I was going to use it sometime this week, why not today?!
To begin, I knew I would want to stamp some of the little hearts "inside" the candy box, so I made a mask for the box:

I than stamped the little hearts inside and cut around the outside of the box with my trimmer.
I wanted this to stand out on the card, so for the background I decided to use all reds (all Christmas papers out for my Christmas crafting!) to do a cool background that would be unique but not compete with the softer colors of the candy box.

A few little epoxy dots, pop up the Candy Hearts box with some foam tape and all done!
I hope you'll visit every day this week for a little Growing in Unity fun! And since we all knew Unity is super awesome- of course they are offering up a prize of an Itty Bitty of winners choice to someone who comments on my Growing in Unity posts here this week! So leave a comment each day for the most chances to win & I'll draw a winner this Saturday!
Thanks for stopping!
